I LOVE LOVE LOVE "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie". Never thought I'd see a reference to it on a tennis board.
Also amazing that you've been involved with tennis for so long. I am forever lamenting the fact that I missed the heyday of Borg and McEnroe.
I happened upon tennis in the days of Becker, Edberg, Andre etc... My claim to fame is having seen Pete Sampras win his first ever title at a now-defunct indoor tournament in Philadelphia. This was (I think 1988 or 1989).
